What a great topic, I love all the ideas here that I have heard. Back to the original question, about building blogs. I am planning to build 10 different blogs that are sub-niches to my main site.
Each blog will be built on a different shared server, e.g. the $10 a month accounts. Then each blog will get it's own content (1 article) added weekly which will cost about $400 a month. Add in the cost of the servers and you have a $500 dollar a month cost.
Then you buy back links from an off-shore link building company (blog comments and other cheap links) for each website to get some inbound links to each of the blogs.
After that, cut your content down to 1 article every two weeks for an operational cost of $300 a month for all 10 blogs (including hosting). Aim the articles at long-tails and dress up the sites with some adsense.
Sure you will have some time and money setting up this program, but the sites can then build their own rank via interlinking after that you have some sites that are earning adsense and passing juice.
This will not replace the link-building tactics planet mentioned, it will be done in addition to it. What do you think?
